William and Catherine started the day in Anglesey, an island in the North of Wales. The couple have a strong connection to the island as they spent the first few years of their marriage on Anglesey when Prince William served as an operational SAR pilot.
Today they dropped in to the RNLI Holyhead Lifeboat Station - one of the oldest lifeboat stations on the Welsh coast.
Some may recall it was the location of the couple’s first official joint engagement in February 2011.
The Prince and Princess greeted members of the public as they walked to the Holyhead Marine Cafe and Bar, where they are met representatives of small businesses and organisations, including the Coastguard and Sea Cadets.
Kate and William then traveled to Swansea, located in the South of Wales. Here they visited St Thomas Church, a re-developed church that supports people in the local area.
The Prince and Princess of Wales met volunteers and operational staff at Windsor Guildhall, who were involved in facilitating the Committal Service for Queen Elizabeth II at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.
The couple posted a message of thanks on their Twitter account following the visit.

On Monday morning, the British Royal Family gathered with around 2000 mourners, including heads of state, at Westminster Abbey to say farewell to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Prince and Princess of Wales were joined by their two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte for the State Funeral.
The family walked in a procession behind the Queen's coffin as it made its way down The Nave of the Abbey.
For this solemn occasion, The Princess of Wales paid homage to the late monarch by carefully selecting an outfit with a sentimental connection to Her Majesty.
She wore a black Alexander McQueen coatdress in a design she first wore in white for the G7 Summit reception and Big Lunch party in 2021, and then to this year's Trooping the Colour during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
The piece is a custom version of the designer's ready-to-wear box pleat coatdress. Modifications were made to the collar and double lapel detail. Kate also had buttons added to the front and cuffs. She had the pockets at the hip removed.
Below is a look at the back box pleats.
Kate's jewellery consisted of special pieces belonging to Her Majesty.
The necklace is the Four Row Pearl Choker which the late Queen commissioned Garrard to create from a set of the finest cultured pearls presented to her by the Japanese government in 1975.
The Duchess first wore the choker to a private dinner at Windsor Castle in 2017, celebrating the Queen and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary.
She wore it again for the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh in April 2021.
The Princess complemented the stately choker with the late Queen's Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings which Kate has worn on many occasion since 2016.
Kate also wore a four-strand pearl bracelet featuring a diamond X clasp.
@Emma4AboutRoyal points out that this is the same one worn by the late monarch, together with the pearl choker and the Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings.
It appears to be the same one Kate wore to a State Banquet in 2019.
Today, the Princess wore her hair in an elegant chignon and topped it with a black felt saucer hat featuring a birdcage veil. It is a custom creation by British milliner, Sean Barrett.
On her feet were her Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Pumps in Black Suede.
And finally, Kate carried her black suede Stuart Weitzman 'Muse' Clutch and a pair of unidentified gloves with a bow appliqué at the wrist.

May Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II rest in peace.
The Princess of Wales held an audience at Buckingham Palace with the First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska, on the eve of Queen Elizabeth II's State Funeral. Mrs Zelenska is in London to pay her respects to the late Queen.
The pair last met in October 2020 when the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge held an audience with the President and First Lady of Ukraine on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.
Today, the Princess looked dignified in her black Catherine Walker 'Beau Tie' Wool Coat which she first wore for Prince Philip's funeral.
On Kate's right wrist was Princess Diana's Nigel Milne 3-Strand Pearl Bracelet.
UFO No More suggests the Princess may have worn new black suede pumps, but perhaps they may be her trusty Gianvito Rossi 105 pumps and the shadows are playing tricks with the heel detail.
ID UPDATE (11 NOV 2023): The Princess did, indeed, wear the Aquazzura 'Purist 105' Pumps. We had a closer look when she chose to re-wear them for the 2023 Festival of Remembrance.
Later today, members of the Royal Family will host a reception for Heads of State at the Palace. It's unknown if any photos will be released of the event.
